Logan Paul has recently made a significant career move by announcing his retirement from professional boxing after just two matches. This decision comes as he shifts his focus towards becoming a full-time WWE Superstar.
Only a few weeks after winning his first boxing match, the YouTuber-turned-wrestler won his first WWE title last weekend.
In 2019, Logan Paul entered the professional combat industry with a white-collar bout against KSI which resulted in a draw.
Despite this setback, Paul persisted and ventured back into the boxing ring. He competed in a high-profile exhibition match against the undefeated Floyd Mayweather in 2021.
His most recent win occurred just last month when he secured victory over Bellator competitor Dillon Danis.
Paul carried his winning run to the WWE, where he won the US championship after defeating wrestling icon Rey Mysterio in Saudi Arabia.
Logan Paul has now officially declared his retirement from boxing. In an interview with Fox Business, he stated: “I think I’m retired from boxing.”
“I’ve done enough going fully undefeated at 25-0. I’m going to be a wrestler now. No more money in boxing, every company is going broke. Full-time wrestler. Beat Rey Mysterio. Fair and square for the US Championship.”
Reflecting on his dominant performance, he expressed: “It feels great. It was a dominant performance. Some frog splashes, some punches, it feels good.”
Paul had previously been balancing his obligations to Misfits Boxing and WWE this year. He also took a hiatus from professional wrestling after SummerSlam in August to get ready for his matchup with Danis.
Danis had challenged him to a rematch. But since winning the WWE title, he has had no lack of opponents.
Paul acknowledges the challenges ahead. He plans to defend his newly acquired belt against formidable opponents like Seth Rollins, LA Knight, Cody Rhodes, and even Bad Bunny.
Paul stated: “I have to defend this belt. There are going to be people coming after me. Seth Rollins, LA Knight, Cody Rhodes.”
“Whoever wants it, they can come get it. Mr. Bad Bunny. Whoever wants it can come get it. I have stuff to do in WWE.”
